I grew my email list by over 15,000 using this social media challenge idea… and in today’s all-new AccessAlly tell-all post, I show you how you can too.
Many people have seen the popular 30 Day List Building Challenge that we’ve been running for the past few years… some people say it’s the best training on list building, and even better than many paid trainings they’ve purchased.
That warms my heart.
I’ve also noticed that many people who take the challenge decide they want to start their own “many day challenge” around their topic of expertise.
Maybe it’s a self-love challenge, a meditation challenge, a fitness challenge, or even a bust through your blocks challenge.
I’m all for it – and today I’m going to share with you exactly how we created our challenge, and how you can learn from our mistakes along the way… so that your challenge can help you build your email list with engaged participants and potentially help you sell more of your programs and offerings, too.

So why do we market to everyone exactly the same?
With a personality quiz on your website, you can build a segmented email list that follows up with subscribers based on how they answer a few simple questions.
But designing these quizzes takes some thought. Luckily, I’ve got you covered with this in-depth quiz design guide!
In this how-to post, we’ll walk you through the steps to designing and then creating your opt-in quiz so it converts to more subscribers and more sales, too.
There's a reason people pay for courses: we value organized, simplified, and easy to absorb information.
And that's why we see that free online courses are so appealing. Because they offer so much more than just another blog post or download.
And because we place such a high value on courses, they're a veritable gold mine for the savvy entrepreneur in search of original list building ideas.
Marketers love saying it: popups are powerful.
But I like to add: they can also be a total waste of your time.
It's not enough to have an exit intent popup plugin on your website and make something pretty to show your visitors. You have to be strategic, informed, and able to design a heckuva popup.
Because it's not enough to just catch the eye of the visitor with your popup: you want to convert them into followers and, eventually, loyal customers. For this, you only have a few short seconds…

I’m not the kind of person that has always had that entrepreneurial spirit in them.
I didn’t have a lemonade stand as a kid. Selling Girl Scout cookies involved sending the order form to work with my parents. I ate more of the marching band fundraising candy bars than I sold. So I’m pretty amazed that I’ve built a five-figure online business from scratch.
Have you ever looked at what everyone else is doing and thought there must be a different way…
Maybe you're like me, and you can get a little rebellious when it comes to commonplace marketing advice.
When everyone else is zigging, it makes sense to zag.
That's exactly what this counter intuitive tribe building and email list growing technique is all about. Keep reading.
If you’re doing any sort of business online, then you likely have some goals for your website… like getting people to opt-in to your email list, or buy products and programs directly.
One of the questions I get asked often when it comes to website conversions is “what's a good conversion rate?”
First, let me define the word conversion, since it can be interpreted in many different ways.
A “conversion” happens on a web page when a visitor decides to take the action that you’ve set a the “goal” for that page.
Building an engaged email list is high on most savvy business owner’s priorities, because email is the one platform that is unlikely to shift. Twitter might become too glutted with messages to be effective, Facebook might enforce stricter publishing guidelines, and Pinterest might be taken over by a new social media platform.
Only one mode of communication with your ideal prospects remains steadfast in the face of a changing social media landscape: email.
That being said, leveraging the power of word of mouth marketing through social media is one of the best ways to grow your email list. The trick is to design an opt-in offer that is built to be shared on social media. And that’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do today!
In the ever-expanding world of online businesses and blogs it’s becoming more difficult to convert your website visitors to subscribers.
The sad reality is that most people who stumble upon your website are unlikely to return, unless you are able to capture their name and email and provide them with a great user experience. leaving them desperate to come back for more.
